FGUMA Introduction

Welcome to the General Foundation of the University of Málaga’s website.

Our Foundation is the Foundation for the entire university community and all of Málaga’s residents. Our aim is none other than to promote and disseminate activities related to science, technology, art, and the humanities, always alongside the UMA to continue growing together. Twentyfive years after our founding, we remain committed to training, research, and the promotion of culture as essential elements for the advancement of society. Amongst our goals are internationalisation and development aid, especially linked to Latin America, and highlighting the value of our province’s cultural and natural heritage.

On this website, you can find information on the different activities we carry out: face-to-face and online training on all topics, highly practical specific training that can help you improve your CV, and language courses and accreditations.

We are a Cambridge authorised exam and preparation centre. We organise free talks as part of our “Dialogue” series as well as lectures in various locations throughout Málaga province so that nobody is left out of the exciting world of knowledge. In addition, we have a programme for supporting young researchers with our Research Awards and for raising awareness on the importance of taking care of the environment with the Photography Prize. We also collaborate with the Spin-off Awards and grants for students with the best academic records.

At the end of 2017, the FGUMA became the University of Málaga’s own resource. We have approached this new stage with responsibility and a desire to continue improving.

“FGUMA, a new means within your reach.”
